souley vegan----downtown oakland

how can soul food be vegan? no meat in my collards? bbq tofu??? anyway i decided to try it. the food is surprisingly flavorful, and has the correct texture.

the bbq tofu is very good, the red beans and rice are spicy and salty, the mac is cheese is silky in texture and pretty good (although i wish it had a more distinctive cheese taste), the only miss was the collards. . .they needed some other kind of seasoning to balance out the flavor.

the pricing is a tad high----2 item combo $8, 3 item combo $10. any additional items ordered are $4-6 each. drinks are $4

the restaurant is plain (not divey) the service is earnest and attentive. during busy times an additional waitperson would be helpful.
